There a several different types of programs I use to create DVD's. I am still testing several different ones to find the best quality product.
My DVD Burner came equipped with MYDVD and Showbiz products that actually allow the user to take a VOB file and change it into an Mpeg1 or Mpeg2 file. Other programs I use are Ulead's Videostudio6, which i believe has now been upgraded to Ulead Videostudio 8 and Ulead DVD Moviefactory. Ulead offers a 30 day free trial of both products at their web site. Also I have great results, but much slower ones, using EZDVD maker. THis program use to be free; however, I do not know if it is even available anymore. If i am transferring from videotape I use a Dazzle Digital video creator. WHen I purchased this product it was supposedly the best around; however, since it is two years old, I imagine someone has created a better product. Finally if I am just copying a disc I use DVD Shrink, which is freeware. I have discovered that this product works better than the 321 studio version that was taken off the market.

Hey Darrell,

Have you used any of the programs that you've mentioned to burn DVDs of material you've downloaded from the Internet Archive?

If so, please share your experiences with us.

Other than the Armageddon video I created, I have not burned any other material from this web site.
However, the programs I use automatically creates the VOB files and other data needed to create a DVD. THe Ulead Programs can create VOB files and finish burning the data to disc in about 30 minutes, which is not bad considering that my DVD burner is a Sony 4X speed. THe program that came with the DVD recorder also creates the VOB files and Animated menus; however, it has taken up to an hour for this program to finish burning a disc.

Most of the stuff I geet from the internet, I usually burn to a VCD. They are cheaper to create and take less time to burn.
